Rotating Sample Divider Provides Division and Volume Reduction for Powdered or Granular Bulk Materials

Aug 13 2019 Read 140 Times

A faultless and comparable analysis is closely linked to accurate sample handling. Only a sample representative of the initial material can provide meaningful analysis results. Rotating sample dividers ensure the representativeness of a sample and thus the reproducibility of the analysis.


Retsch, a world-leading supplier of lab equipment for sample homogenisation and sieve analysis, manufacture a PT 600 variable-speed rotating sample divider which is specially designed for representative, dust-free division and volume reduction of large amounts of powdered or granular bulk materials. The sample is fed as a continuous stream at a controlled rate via the chute. Either one part sample is extracted or the stream is divided into equal segments by the action of a ‘circle’ of segmental buckets rotating beneath it. The unit operates in accordance with internationally recognised sampling protocols and divides samples in a representative and reproducible way. Two modules in one machine allow for both batch-processing and continuous sampling with reject.


The PT 600 rotating sample divider is frequently used to divide samples of a multituse of materials including cement clinker, chemicals, coffee, fertilisers, flours, grains, metals powders, minerals, sand nuts and seeds. If you require a demonstration please do contact Retsch UK.
